KCSB is Santa Barbara’s only independent and non-commercial station, creating soul-stirring and people-powered radio for the Santa Barbara area! This is true radio from the ground up, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without you <3


KCSB is funded primarily by students and the community at large. As a non-commercial, educational FM station broadcasting for the public interest, KCSB enters into no commercial contracts, where we strive to provide programming substantially different from that carried by commercial broadcast media. It is also designed to be educational for both programmers and listeners.

UCSB students and community members are provided an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of radio broadcasting, and an opportunity to be a part of a growing community! KCSB provides a platform to a diverse group of programmers who are managed by UCSB students and advised by staff to get marginalized voices and carefully curated independent music on the local airwaves!


Voting takes place THIS MONTH, and ends August 31st at 11:59pm
